[But there are hundred other birds]
[He never can make sing;]
Who wont be driven [nor dragged to hell]
By prophet Priest or Kin[g]
Who’s sires have bled in days done by
For their dear s Cause
And who will still maintain their <​its​> right Its liberty and laws—

[He never can make sing;]
Who wont be driven [nor dragged to hell]

Who’s sires have bled in days done by
